Tottenham urged to break the bank for Brendan Rodgers by Teddy Sheringham
Tottenham are on the lookout for a new full-time manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked by the club last week following a disappointing run of results. While Ryan Mason has been given the reins on an interim basis, Spurs are actively looking for a new head coach and have had to face defeat in their pursuit of Julian Nagelsmann. (h/t Express)
With the 33-year-old German set to take over at Bayern Munich, Tottenham have now been urged to break the bank and secure Rodgers as the next manager by Sheringham. (h/t Express)
“If I had the pick of the bunch and Tottenham were ready to go out and spend big money, which I presume they will, then I would go and break the bank for Brendan Rodgers. I think he’s done an outstanding job at the different clubs he’s been at.
“He knows the Premier League very well, he knows his system and how he wants the game to be played. He takes the game to the opposition, he doesn’t wait to capitalise on other peoples’ mistakes and he likes to control the game a bit like how Pep Guardiola does.”
Sheringham went on to add that Rodgers would do a brilliant job at Tottenham if he was backed the same way as Mourinho was last summer by the club.
“Given the funds that were available for Jose Mourinho, if Rodgers was backed with the same sort of money then I think he would do a fantastic job.”

Rodgers, undoubtedly, would be a brilliant appointment for us. However, the potential lack of Champions League involvement next season could be a major hurdle in Tottenham’s appointment to name him manager.
